Ramsey Cascades is the tallest waterfall in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park falling over 100 feet. The hike there is strenuous at over four miles and rising over 2,000 feet in elevation.

The pool at the base of Abrams Falls on Abrams Creek Makes a wonderful destination for a swim. The trailhead for the 2.5 mile hike to the falls, which is rated moderate to difficult, is located at the west end of the Cades Cove Loop road. At 20 feet in height,Abrams Falls is not tall, but the large volume of water makes it impressive. It also makes swimming near the base of the falls very dangerous. A number of people got too close and drowned.
